Former health secretary Matt Hancock, who was in charge during the height of Covid, has apologised after the High Court ruled government policies on discharging patients from hospital into care homes at the onset of the pandemic were “unlawful”.
Judges on Wednesday ruled the government failed to take into account the risk to elderly and vulnerable residents from non-symptomatic transmission of coronavirus, undermining Mr Hancock’s previous claims that a “protective ring” was put in place for the most vulnerable.ITV News YouTube Channel
